Two famous ocean vessels are in San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two legendary vessels of the ocean are being repaired and retrofitted right here in San Diego.

The ocean's best-known "green" vessels, the Rainbow Warrior and the Brigitte Bardot, are dry-docked at the Marine Group Boat Works facilities in National City and Chula Vista.

They are scheduled for several weeks of work, including structural and mechanical repairs.

The Brigitte Bardot is heavily involved in countering pacific whalers, a mission that her skipper says in vital to protecting the world.

"I'm passionate about saving our world. If we all sit on our couch and eat chips, our whales will be gone our oceans will die, and we'll have no forests left," she said.

The Brigitte Bardot just made it's television debut on Animals Planet's show "Whale Wars."
